Oh, well, we're never ready... just a little less unaware...

What's drawn is drawn, what's packed is packed, and what doesn't fit at the suitcase stays...

This is my 19th Comic-Con in a row... sometimes it fells the same as always, sometimes it's brand new, sometimes it makes me want to run to hide under the bed until it's all over... SDCC is a cruel mistress... but she's so damn irresistible.

There's one thing I've learned... at least one, in all this time. And it has held true every single time. No matter how exhausting, overwhelming, dissapointing, or plain depressing most of the show can get to be... there's always... every single time, one moment. You get to know someone, not necessarily famous. You get to find some treasure. You get some opportunity. It can be just anything. But, every single time, theres at least one moment when you say: I LOVE YOU, COMIC-CON.

And here we go again.

This time, as usual (but maybe for the last time, with the series ending and all that) I'll be at the Comicraft / Elephantmen booth, #2106, in front of DC... I'll have a bunch of original art for sale, some prints (the classic mechanical chameleon among them), there will be free sketches, stop by and say hi... I don't have a schedule, so I guess I'll be on and off, but never too far away.

On Friday at 5:00 PM I'll be at the Aspen Booth, #2320, also in front of DC, on other side, signing the John Carpenter's The Thing Tribute book...

And I could not say there will be prints of the Antiope / Wesley image... but if you see someone with that in a t-shirt it could not hurt to ask...

See you there!

Hi, I'm a comic book and concept artist. I've worked for Heavy Metal, Metal Hurlant, Zenescope and Boom! Studios, among other stuff. Currently I'm working in the Elephantmen series published by Image comics. Pleased to meet you.


TLIID 363. Hellboy 2049
Girls and boys, in honor of Blade Runner,  this is 2049 week at The Line it is Drawn

So... somebody will survive, in any event...

Have a nice weekend, folks!
TLIID 361. Planetary in the Arrowverse
Girls and boys, this is Arrowverse week in The Line it is Drawn!

Just so everyone's on the same page here: Arrowverse is the given name to the superhero TV shows of DC/Warner: Arrow (hence the name), Flash, Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow. Am I missing any? I actually haven't been able to get into any of them after the pilot. I do like Lucifer, but that's a different species.

Anyway... the idea was to re-design characters that haven't shown up yet on TV, as they could appear in the Arrowverse version. And if you haven't read Planetary, shame on you, fix that immediately.

Have a nice weekend, folks!
TLIID 360. Antman and Wasp's creepy vacation
Girls and boys, this is a special vacation week at The Line it is Drawn.

Full disclosure: this is a really dumb idea, done in 45 minutes or less, and I'm really posting it for continuity's sake.

Fuller disclosure: any resemblance to any real life dotard is mere coincidence.

Have a nice weekend, folks!
Lisa and robot friends
We're going to need this. And I'm going to need a hand, folks. It will be explained.

Hi Axel, just saw in Previews that Elephantmen will begin his last story arc with issue 77.
Can you give any information how long it will approximately run and do you have any plans what you will do afterwards?

I would just love if you and Richard Starkings created a new book together, since you two seem to work so well together.
You've definitely become THE Elephantmen artist for me.

Thanks so much for the support and nice comments!

So, yes, the cat's out of the bag... I wasn't planning on making a big fuzz (or maybe I'm still getting used to the idea), but, as it says, the series will end with issue 80, which will be a special one. My last three issues will be 77-79 (76 is by Boo Cook).

As for what comes after that... well... I'm sending a lot of messages in bottles, let's see who answers...
